The Psalmist and Accompanist in Partnership
Breakout 3 (1:15 PM – 2:30 PM) | Gratz Room 4F
In some traditions, responsorial settings are the normative way of encountering the psalms at Sunday liturgy. Other traditions are just beginning the use of responsorial psalmody. This workshop will explore various styles of responsorial psalmody and how to effectively present them. We will discuss when the singer leads and when the accompanist leads, the transition from refrain to verse, what to play and not to play, phrasing, breathing, and much more.
